10 Years, 10 Valades: A Tribute

Sophia Boccard

2017 marks the 10-year anniversary of Casa Lucila’s opening, and we compiled 10 signature experiences – one for each year we’ve been open – to create a once-in-a-lifetime package, inviting our guests to celebrate with us. Each experience focuses on a unique member of the Valades Valdez family, including Lucila, Fernando and their eight daughters. Each family member is unique, and thus each element of the package showcases their individual talents and personalities in ways that are true to Mazatlan.

We start off with the matriarch of the family, Lucila, of which the hotel is affectionately named after. As a guest in her home – Casa Lucila – you’ll enjoy accommodations in one of the eight guestrooms, as well as her recipe for panquekis – her version of the French crepes.



Fernando Valades, the popular boleros singer of the ‘60s and ‘70s, draws up the inspiration of singing and dancing, so we invite you to visit the Plaza Machado for an al fresco dinner while patrons dance in the square. Or, visit our neighborhood dive bar, Puerto Viejo, for some karaoke singing!



Conchita, owner and designer of Casa Lucila, and daughter of Lucila and Fernando, wanted to create a space for couples to rekindle or ignite their love for one another, just as her parents did throughout their marriage. Enjoy a private candlelit dinner for two on the rooftop terrace with sweeping ocean views.



Lupita, a seamstress and lover of the visual arts, inspires us to invite you on a visit to the Museo de Arte Mazatlan, followed by a tour through the area’s various arts and crafts boutiques.

Lety is the best baker of the sisters, so we invite you to take a private dessert-making class for two – including wine pairings – with Chef Pepe.

Comedy was Chayito’s calling. In honor of her playful spirit, spend an evening at the Mazatlan Comedy Club.



Esther is one of the best cooks among the sisters; craft some of her favorite recipes with Chef Pepe during a private cooking class for two at Lucila’s Restaurant.

Traveling and history is Marina’s favorite pastime, so Las Labradas, a beach site of petroglyphs, is a must-visit.

Lucy, nicknamed La Guera (the blonde), was the best storyteller of the sisters. Enjoy an in-room curated guide of the best things to do in Mazatlan upon your arrival at Casa Lucila.

Like Alma, once Queen of the Floral Games during the 1961 Carnival in Mazatlan, we want to pamper you at Casa Lucila’s Piccolino Spa. Enjoy a 60-minute massage of your choice.

Not to be forgotten, Lucila and Fernando had five sons. Stay tuned for Casa Lucila’s 15th anniversary to get to know the boys!
